I am new to WordPress Theme development. I want to learn plugin development.

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
- "Asking to recommend a product (plugin, theme, book, hosting provider), tool, library or off-site resource is out of scope of the site, as it attracts opinionated answers and spam. Instead, describe the problem and what has been done so far to solve it." – Pieter Goosen, fuxia
A good place to start is creating a plugin to replace adding code to your functions.php file and making it "must use".
That way your code additions are independent of your theme. It's basic and useful and won't be accidentally removed, or disabled.
Hope that helps!
PS I'm new, so please excuse me if I've done something wrong!
